Are you still trying to decide whether your organization should dive into a #GivingTuesday campaign? Each organization is unique, and you need to be realistic about your resources and your donors, but don't let the idea of doing two campaigns in one month scare you away. We've seen that organizations who kick off the year-end giving season with a #GivingTuesday campaign raise more overall in December than organizations who focus on the last-minute push alone. So, having a successful #GivingTuesday as well as a year-end push can be done. (Even by organizations with a small staff or a small list.) Learn more here.

That's why it's important for all Medicare beneficiaries to evaluate their coverage choices each fall. Encourage your patients to compare their current plan to new options so that they can see if they can lower their costs or find a plan that better suits their needs. Open Enrollment is the one time of year when ALL Medicare beneficiaries can see what new benefits options Medicare has to offer and make changes to their coverage. Learn more here.
